2007 C3P0

A deflated “Star Wars” C3PO head morphs into a used prophylactic. I employed gilded bronze to further its implications as trophy. Yet the combo of both material and flaccid image emasculates itself. I’m interested in derailing iconography and hero mythology within the fanatic culture of science fiction. I'm interested in how consumer action figures and gaming mechanisms have become our present-day religious iconography. I re-interpreted a castrated version of this beloved character from the epic story via this sculpture.
